Pica in Extremis


Pica is a fascinating condition. It is the affliction where one eats non-food materials. One of the most common of these materials is Clay. The causation is often tied to malnourishment and a primal desire to A) eat something (anything) B) ingest necessary minerals. You will often find that healthy people will partake in Pica, specifically children and pregnant women.


That said. Eating fired clay is a whole other thing. I've been hungry, but not that hungry.

These plates titled "I'm hungry" are pretty cheeky and cute.
